Ezekiel 26:17-19 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

17 Then they will sing a song of sadness about you. They will say to you,

“ ‘Famous city, you have been completely destroyed!
    You were filled with sea traders.
You and your citizens
    were a mighty power on the seas.
You terrified everyone
    who lived in you.
18 The lands along the coast trembled with fear
    when you fell.
The islands in the sea
    were terrified when you were destroyed.’ ”

19 The Lord and King says to Tyre, “I will turn you into an empty city. You will be like cities where no one lives anymore. I will cause the ocean to sweep over you. Its mighty waters will cover you.

    peopled by men of the sea!
You were a power on the seas,
    you and your citizens;
you put your terror
    on all who lived there.
18 Now the coastlands tremble
    on the day of your fall;
the islands in the sea
    are terrified at your collapse.’
